Million Mask Challenge

As we face the nation’s most challenging healthcare crisis, OU Medicine is on the frontline, caring for Oklahoma’s critically ill. We are asking everyone — from people with needle and thread to large manufacturers — to join the effort to provide desperately needed masks.

Why We Need Masks

Face masks are the first line of defense for healthcare workers who are battling the COVID-19 pandemic. Personal protective equipment, often called PPE, is one of the keys to keeping healthcare professionals safe in the battle against COVID-19 — and face masks are the first line of defense.

OU Medicine is proud to have already instituted universal masking on our campus, which means every individual is asked to wear a mask with varying mask types, depending upon the area in which the individual is within. This increases protection, but also increases our needs for different types of masks, including surgical masks, K N-95 masks, and N-95 masks, which are formally designated as personal protective equipment, or PPE. The global supply for this equipment continues to be uncertain and we are actively taking steps to secure more supplies. The availability of these supplies long term is also uncertain, due to the incredible demand worldwide.
